Herbaceous aromas with clay, red fruits, baking spices. Despite its age, the fruit is still quite lively, with flavors of cranberry and cherry, more fungal earthy notes with black olive and a mellow finish.

Impressively lively with good color still, although there is considerable browning on the edges. Soft iodine and granitic notes on the nose. Age is clear in the mouth - the wine is smooth and mellow with a dry haystack flavor on the finish. Good mouthfeel still, although the acids are ebbing. Finishes on a nice cassis before a little barnyard at the end.

Winemaker's Notes:

Petit Cheval is seductive in its youth, being enjoyable from the moment it is bottled, as well as being endowed with a capacity to age.
